White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made a desperate attempt to shift blame for the massive rise in crime that America has witnessed in the first several months of the Biden administration.
As MSN reports:
The White House sidestepped a question Monday about rising crime statistics, attributing the data to the number of guns in citizens’ hands.
“Well, I would say, certainly, there is a guns problem,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said. “And that’s one of the reasons that we have proposed and now are implementing funding for community violence prevention programs across the country.”
Biden is imploring the Senate to consider at least two House-passed bills that would impose stricter requirements on people hoping to buy a gun, Psaki added. But when asked whether Biden had spoken to Republican negotiators working on compromise proposals, such as Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey, she referred reporters to Senate leadership.
“Putting in place commonsense gun safety measures is something that has been a priority for him throughout his career,” she said of Biden. “He helped pass the Brady Bill. He got background checks in place. He helped get the assault weapons ban passed, and he will continue to encourage and push that with members while he is president. Top of his agenda.”
